Tottenham are in talks with Paulo Fonseca over becoming their new manager, according to Di Marzio.
It’s been more than 50 days since Daniel Levy sacked Jose Mourinho, and it’s proved a draining process for Spurs, who’ve missed out on all of their top targets and were unable to agree a deal to appoint Antonio Conte last week.
Meanwhile, they failed to convince Mauricio Pochettino to return despite the Argentinian’s interest in coming back.
And Di Marzio now believes that Fonseca is discussing the possibility of a three-year deal, with the former Roma manager keen on coming to north London.
Fabio Paratici, who’s expected to be announced as Tottenham’s new director of football, has a good relationship with the Portuguese.
Fonseca has managed the likes of Braga, Shakhtar Donetsk and Porto, but was sacked and replaced by Mourinho last month having led Roma to their worst league since 2011-12.
Fabrizio Romano believes that a decision will be made in the coming hours, with both sides confident of a deal being completed.
